I have this strange issue on my install.

I added Eclipse to my system without installing it. It lives in a folder outside of Program Files and on another disk. Following online tutorials, I created a shortcut to it inside the %APPDATA% folder. This action causes the program to show up as a tile.

This is the shortcut

And this is the tile that got created

If I were to make a copy of eclipse.exe in the same folder, then create a shortcut to it, it works as expected; the shortcut gets added to the "Recently added" list, listed under the initial, no tile is created, and it is also found by Cortana.

I also noticed that if I had pinned the new item before (then removed it), it will not work again.

Any idea why this is happening and how do I fix this?
